Mid & East Antrim Policing and Community Safety Partnership will consider support for any constituted community or voluntary group undergoing activities within its statutory and civic remit where there is a benefit to Policing and community safety in the Mid & East Antrim area.

Policing and community safety partnerships aim to create safer and shared communities.  To help achieve this aim, awards will fund projects which prevent, reduce or address the following issues:

  • Addressing Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Reducing Crime, Fear of Crime (may include Business Retail Crime)
  • Rural Crime
  • Road Safety
  • Cyber Crime
  • Domestic Violence
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Building Confidence in Policing
  • Paramilitary Activity

Grants will be considered for those groups who provide a platform for increasing relationships with police or were Police are directly involved in the project. Mid and East Antrim PCSP would also encourage applications which create relationships between both sides of the community particularly where traditionally these relationships may have been difficult.
